Atom

We are beginning our journey into space for the next Children’s song cycle for the Abbey in May with the Atom.

Eventually, I worked out how to write it – thanks to a book club meeting on Wuthering Heights!

Atom

 

One two three

One two three

They waltz eternally

Calmly

externally

But oh the

fires that burn

In them internally!

 

One two three

One two three

Proton loves yearningly

All of his energy

Is fixed on her

 

One two three

One to three

Neutron just

doesn’t care

She hardly

knows he’s there –

Nose in the air!

 

One two three

One two three

Outside their

cosy globe

Prowls the

Electron

That burns for them both!

 

Should he and

Proton meet

Fire would be our fate.

Their split would

kill us all

Such is his hate!

 

Proton and Neutron turn

Locked in their endless dance

Ringed by Electron

Forever alone…

 

One two three

One two three

They waltz eternally

Calmly

externally

But oh the

fires that burn

In them internally!
